#ChallengeToWrite -- If you could have personally witnessed one event in history...

May 14, 2013
If you could have personally witnessed one event in history, what would you want to have seen?

If I would of witnessed one event in history it would of been the President John F Kennedy's Birthday Celebration at the third Madison Square Garden on May 10, 1962.

The place was full of famous people and the Birthday Cake was HUGE! (Watch the video below to see the cake) Performers sang and everyone was in ah when Marilyn Monroe "finally" made it to the stage (It use to be a big joke that Marilyn was late for EVERYTHING so they used that as a "prop" for Marilyn Monroe to enter the stage to sing. She was "Fashionably Late")

In nothing but a nude-colored sparkly dress that she could barley move in, Marilyn Monroe sang, in her sultry voice, one of the most memorable songs in history... "Happy Birthday, Mr. President"... Her voice was very seductive and quite and you could tell by the long silence that Marilyn was a bit nervous. But once she started singing, it was simply beautiful! She had re-written the traditional "Happy Birthday" song to be personalized for John F Kennedy, to fit the occasion.

Some of her lyrics included:

"Thanks, Mr. President
For all the things you've done
The battles that you've won
The way you deal with U.S. Steel
And our problems by the ton
We thank you so much"

Once the song was over, the crowd went crazy and John F Kennedy approached the stage. His exact words were: "I can now retire from politics after having had "Happy Birthday" sung to me in such a sweet and wholesome way!!"

Of course he was joking, and everyone laughed.

I would of LOVED to of been able to watch one of Marilyn's last performances, I would of also kept a good watch on people to see if I could of figured out if anything sneaky was going on around there. Rumors say that Marilyn spent the night in JFK's hotel room that night but their is no proof. I would of done my best to of talked to Marilyn and maybe... just maybe... found out if the Kennedy's had any wild plans about how they were going to keep Miss Marilyn Monroe quiet about her diary full of dirty little secrets.
I have an odd feeling that even though, noone has found Marilyn Monroe's diary yet, (not that I know of) that at one point, the FBI who was watching sooo many people back in the 60s, got their hands on that diary and destroyed it! It is said that Marilyn had many secrets in her diary that included plans and secrets from The White House aka JFK and Bobby (Robert) Kennedy along with (maybe) some dirt on Frank Sinatra and his dealings with the Mafia.

I don't believe that Marilyn died of just an overdose of pills. Deep down, I know it was something more. 

RIP Marilyn Monore
